Monstalining this weekend

When you guys did your roll in liner did you just pour in the liner and spread it around or use a paint tray?

When I did mine I just poured it in and rolled it. Although I did use a brush out of the can first to do all of the cut in around the edges

How fast does it dry when you pour it in the tub and roll it on? Like how much do you pour on to the tub at a time?

I put it in the paint tray and then rolled on did my exterior it's been two days and is pretty solid I guess it takes 7 days to fully cure and depends on humidity.

Hahah i so want to do this. Carpets been pulled forever and i have quadratecs floor mats but the tub itself is scratched here and there and the thought of rust scares me. I just dont know much about doing it really like what all needs to come off and whats the best way to put it on and such. I guess i need to be doing research.. Maybe this summer

I just did mine a couple weeks ago. One of the better tips I picked up from another member here was to use a gladware or ziplock container. I mixed it all up in the can and dumped it all into a 16x6 (approx) container. Its easy to put the lid on to seal it up between filling the trays and it was the tray on the second coat.

One more tip... don't let this stuff get on your skin if you can help it Good luck.

How long did you wait between coats? How long before you put your seats and stuff in?

How many gallons did it take to do the ext and the inside? Been wanting to do mine, but have no idea how much to order.

I don't think I would try to pour in directly in the tub and spread it just because the issue of trying to even out the paint along with it possibly seeping into the bolt holes(even covered). With the paint tray, you have more control with the even layers and less probability of splatter and wearing out the rollers. I waited about 2 hrs between layers(depending on weather) and any additional leftover paint was added to the floorboards. I waited 24 hrs before reinstalling seats, etc..If you paint in a garage, I would push it outside to dry. That smell will seep in the house and I could still smell it in the Jeep for 2 wks.(That's with a safari top). One gallon was enough for the interior so I would think exterior would take another gallon. Would take a whole wkd. Remove/sand/clean Fri, Paint-sat, Reinstall-sun, enjoy mon.

I did mine a week ago. I'd def use a paint tray. N I waited 4 hours between coats. I'd brush all the hard to reach areas first that way to font have to lean allover the place with wet liner on the main areas of the tub.

It's been almost 2 mos with no more smell.(usually 3 wks when the smell is barely noticeable or gone) Its been holding up real well with no issues. Jeeps been rained on with the safari /CRES top and I just leave the drain plugs out and the floorboards eventually dries up after a few days. The floorboards/center console are comfortable to the touch after a long drive and any dirt and be hosed down and wiped off.

Prep is the key. I would use the roller tray and order an extra roller. Here's mine just about a year ago and it is holding up great. Have fun and good luck!

the texture is pretty much the same now the rhino liner feels more rubbery its a bit squishy. the rhino liner was done professionally before i bought the jeep and its never given me any problem and i throw tools and tires and everything in my jeep. the monstalier is new on there but already seems extremely durable and it also comes in a wide variety of colors and is also a do it yourself for a good price compared to rhino liner. so overall there both equal to me but its always cool to pick your own color to match the interior

Use a paint tray.

Mine's been Monstalined for a couple years now and it's held up fantastically.

Did anyone monstaline over unscuffed parts? I can't get behind the roll bar and some of the rear corners. Did it stick for you? It's not a traffic area so I assume it would be fine

There were quite a few hard to reach places(I'm sure)that I didn't scuff. One year later, it's still perfect. As long as the surface was clean, it should adhere fine.
